Well, I've been 'at it' again.
Popped down to my 'place' earlier, first time in a few weeks that there was anything, well, apart from a very low rent Peugeot from the late 80's a couple of weeks ago. It was £25.....was way too scruffy for that, even had a cracked wheel.
But, caught some good stuff today, first of all spotted a Claud Butler 531 frame and forks, with chainset. It has been 're-enamelled' by somewhere in Yorkshire in the past, but the paint has some marks now it has been through the tip. Also got a beautiful Peugeot Record Du Monde Competition, again, 531, but was missing a front wheel, and had some nasty modern straight bars. I managed to blag another wheel, which is a really nice alloy one from the 70's which I can't remember the name of......it has large flanges on the hubs, I'll remember.
Of no interest here, I also got a Raleigh Honey, Peugeot Antibes and a Raleigh Prima, all ladies bikes.......first one very retro, second a nice 80's town, and 3rd one a racing.
They aren't mega cheap anymore, and all have problems, maybe bits missing, rust and marks on frames and chrome, poor tyres, but I spent £70 on 5 bikes, and I'm planning on the Antibes and Prima paying for the lot, so 'free' bikes for me
